Artist Olafur Eliasson explores the importance of turning artistic potential into environmental action in this inspiring new video created by VICE for The Creators Project. Eliasson discusses his Little Sun – a solar-powered LED lamp that can run for up to 5 hours on a single charge. One in every five people on the planet has no access to electricity, so Eliasson sought to harness solar energy in a creative lamp that provides an affordable and sustainable light source for all.
